PASSIONS OF THE GHOST

Author(s): 

In the final chapter of this time-traveling trilogy, an immortal warrior with huge trust issues regarding women must
rely on a modern female not known
for her honesty. Add in an angry dragon, and you have the recipe for a dangerous and enchanting novel. Expertly utilizing the fish-out-of-water theme, Mackenzie has forced her powerful hero into the most dangerous adventure of all -- love.

After 700 years in stasis, Reynald de Mortimer is awakened, flummoxed to discover that his once mighty castle has been turned into a hotel for partying guests.

Amy would rather be anywhere than at the Medieval Long Weekend on the Welsh border, but she's promised to help her brother, Jez, steal the Star of Russia. Jez is in deep trouble, and Amy owes him, so she's stuck playing bait to a lecher -- until she runs across a real medieval warrior on a quest.

Despite her initial skepticism, Amy comes to believe that Rey is not crazy and that maybe she can help. But neither counts on the awakening of a vengeful dragon.
